Parts Library: Updates

Updates

Keep your LDraw installation up-to-date by downloading the official LDraw.org Part Updates. The part files have been carefully constructed by LDraw users and are peer-reviewed before being added to the LDraw.org Part Library. Work is continually taking place to develop as many LDraw parts as possible while maintaining the group's commitment to quality.

An official LDraw.org Part Update Mirror Download site is made available in case ldraw.org is unavailable. If you like, bookmark that page along with this one for your convenience.

To use this update, download this file to the directory where your LDraw directory is located. If you have C:\LDraw, download this update to C:\. Once downloading is complete, install the update by clicking Start, then Run. Type the full path to the update file, along with a '-y' option. Something like this:

c:\lcad0403.exe -y

The '-y' will tell the update to replace existing parts with newer versions, without prompting you for each change.

Complete Update
This is the complete set of update files. To get the entire parts library, you need to start with the base installation.

To use this update, download this file to the directory where your LDraw directory is located. If you have C:\LDraw, download to C:\. To run the file, click Start>Run (File>Run in Win 3.x), type in 'complete.exe -y' and press Enter. The '-y' switch will answer 'yes' to all the files, sparing you from needless time and effort pressing the [Y] key repeatedly.

After you have run the file, run your mklist.exe program to create the parts list. Typing [D] when prompted sorts the parts by description - this is recommended. If you have trouble with the mklist.exe program, you can download the current, complete parts.lst file by clicking here.
